Guide/Vodič was created in collaboration with artist Kim Beck. As part of the Outside Project, the work was shown at the Kontekst Galerija in Belgrade, Serbia.
With the idea of moving beyond the canonical sites and narratives presented by traditional guidebooks, we invited Belgrade residents and visitors to come into the Kontekst Galerija to create guidebook pages illustrating their personal landmarks and experiences in the city.
Gallery visitors were then able to construct their own guidebooks from the many photocopied pages that hung on the walls, ordering them as they liked, and binding them into covers designed by the artists. Blank pages were also available for visitors to document their own notions of Belgrade.
- Guide to BelgradeIn 2011, we reprinted the guide in an edition of 50 with a letterpress cover and a new introduction by Dejan Atanackovic, the Curator of the Outside Project.
- Installation in Kontekst GalleryMore than -- pages hung around the walls of Kontekst Galerija for visitors to choose from.
- Visitors making their own guidesGallery visitors could construct their own guides from the pages created by themselves and others. Some also created new pages that were added to the collection.
